【Shanghai Cao'an Shopping Mall】

Shanghai Cao'an Shopping Mall, located inside Huan Xi'er Road, Zhenxin Street, Jiading district, covers an area of 125 hectares, of which 70 hectares are management areas for business.

At present, it includes seven comprehensive specialized markets, such as the Shanghai Textile Market, Shanghai Orient Auto Parts City, Shanghai International Shopping Mall, Shanghai International Shoe Market, Jiaqiao Wholesale Market, Shanghai Grain Trade Market and Shanghai Industrial Products Wholesale Market. It is an important shopping mall northwest of Shanghai.

【Auto Museum】

The Auto Museum in Shanghai's Jiading district is the first professional automobile museum. The museum's first exhibition displayed 70 classical types of automobiles since the world's first automobile had met consumers, showcasing the improvement in the automobile industry over hundreds of years. The museum provides a research and appreciation platform for classical automobile fans.

【Guyi Garden (Guyiyuan)】

Located at Nanxiang town in Jiading, it was built during the reign of Emperor Wanli of the Ming Dynasty (1574-1620). Covering an area of nearly 10 hectares, it was one of the most famous gardens in South China in the Ming Dynasty and the largest of the five classic gardens in Shanghai.

The name of the garden was borrowed from the Book of Songs, meaning beautiful and green bamboo. The Ming-styled architecture, couplets and poems, and stone-paved paths lined with flowers, represent the main features of the garden.

Tourist attractions in the garden, including Bujizhou (non-anchored stone boat), Tangjingzhuang (pavilion of Tang Dynasty scriptures), Yiyetang (the reclusive hall), Buqueting (corner lost pavilion), Qingqing Garden (green and clean garden) and Nanyuan all bear rich and unique gardening connotations.

A folk saying manifests the beauty and reputation of Guyi Garden: "Classic gardens in Suzhou are the best, and in parallel, there is Guyi Garden in Nanxiang, Shanghai."
